Hey, just joined in this game.....and know this is not on the topic, as I'm not good at guessing........but BARON....that pic of yours, with the sky...........how beautiful.....this is from an artist's point of view...the sky could almost have been painted by Turner, the top section of it anyway.....I'm going to print that off, and try...(I said try!!!) to copy it.....I just love it...........Where was the pic taken Baron?

Yea the color of the sky does say it's East. Lorong K Telok Kurau perhaps?

On second thought.it can't be the one on lorong K,that one has a mosque next to it and doesn't look as grand.

The only straight park I know of in the East Coast vicnity is the one in Siglap, a sort of connector. There is one location where a similar looking building is at...could it be?

And yes last checked..it is indeed a 'straight' straight park *glances at Vaucluse*

Straight as in linear. Siglap Linear Park...and the temple is Kim
San Temple.

Seeing as nobody managed to guess the location, I have taken
the liberty of choosing the next one. It is MUCH easier this time.
:D
